PhD scholarship in Data-Driven Modelling and Control for Energy Systems – DTU Compute
DTU Fotonik
Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark, Europe

Your responsibility will be to develop and validate mathematical grey-box (data-driven digital twin) models of individual parts of an energy system and afterwards design and develop an appropriate optimal controller. The model development includes describing the necessary system dynamics and external dependencies with e.g. the weather. As part of this effort, you will collaborate with other researchers at DTU and other universities. You should also expect a strong interaction with industry collaborators developing and implementing smart energy systems. The position will also involve identification of the models (i.e., of the model structure and parameters), and, depending on how the projects develop and your specific background, real-life implementation of the developed methods in the field in collaboration with industry partners. Furthermore, you will support the supervision of students (primarily BSc and MSc projects) and disseminate your research through journal publications, conference contributions, and presentations in seminars and courses.
